About Knowledge and Study (Boomteeltstudieclub)

Within TCO, the theme of knowledge and study is addressed by the Boomteeltstudieclub; a tree cultivation study club with its own identity. The previous year was a successful one for the working group, with well-attended excursions and an increase in its membership. At the core of the tree cultivation study club are authenticity of species and variety, the economy and cost price. The working group organises training programmes. This is in keeping with the internal themes addressed by the various working groups.
